Fall to Piece Lyrics

I looked away
then I look back at you,
You try to say
the things that you can't undo,
If I had my way
I'd never get over you,
Today's the day
I pray that we make it through.

Make it through the fall,
Make it through it all.

And I...

    Okay you people are dumb. It's about a girl who's been in love with her boyfriend for a long time. Long time means they've obviously been through a lot. And when he screws up/fight, she always forgives him because she remembers how much she loves him. And instead of talking about it (making it worse) she just wants to stare at him, to remind her of the reasons why she loves him, because talking can cause more problems. And when she says she wants to cry in front of him, she wants him to see how much he's hurt her, without saying anything, to change him. She wants him to feel what she feels for him. She feels like they're falling out of love and she doesn't want to fall to pieces, because she's nothing without him. She wants to know what's going on in his head, and she wants to feel closer to him, like how she used to, when she first fell in love with him.

    She's in love with this guy. They have been through a few hard times in the relationship, but they keep forgiving each other and she keeps forgiving him because he has been so great to her, and they really click.
    Avril is going through hard times in her life, and he always helps her, and she wants to get away from the hard times in her life and she forgets about it when she is with him. She wants to make it through the pain and she goes to him when the world seems like it's against her.

    I think this song is about a girl who's in love with a guy, most likely her friend, but he keeps giving her mixed signals. Like maybe he's dating another girl, but then he'll turn around and start telling the singer he thinks she's beautiful and flirting with her... So basically she's really confused and she "wants to know how he feels/ wants to know when it's real" because she wants to know if he really has feelings for her or if he's just teasing her.

    I think this song is about really liking someone, and wishing you could tell them about how you strongly you feel ("If I had my way, I'd never get over you").

    I think the song talks about how you can be so captivated, so in love, so overwhelmed by how much you love someone. You could stare at them all day. You want to cry in front of them because you wish they knew how much you want them. ("I just wanna cry in front of you, I don't want to talk about it because I'm in love with you.")

    Overall, amazing song <3

    I believe this song is about hiding the problems in a relationship. She's having a tough time, but when things are bad she wants to forget about them because she loves him. She'd rather pretend everything was alright and forget about talking about it, because she simply wants to remind herself of why she was with him in the first place.

    i think that her boy friend and her got into a big fight and they broke up " You tried to say the things that you can't undo" and that if they didn't fight she'ld neve get over him. but even after the fight she still cares about him and loves him

    Ok so think this song is talking about a girl that is madly in love with some guy. And when she's at school all she can do when she is around him is just stare at him and imagine them being together. All though she doesn't want him to find out. Then one day sommehow he finds out but rejects her which is why she is singing "i don't wanna fall to pieces"

    She wants to get up enough courage to talk to someone. Whether it be about a relationship that could be...or once was. Honestly, I think that there was a break up involved and since that break-up she kept her feelings and thoughts about it inside, but now she feels it's time to tell that person how she's been feeling for sooo long. And she doesn't wanna break down or get scared because she wants to show that she's stronger despite what happened.

    It sounds like she really likes someone, and "Today is the day", that she wants to say she loves him. She doesn't want to talk about it, she doesn't want a conversation. "falling" and "falling to pieces"; pretty much breaking down, breaking down and crying. or that telling him will be a fall, or the possibility that he doesn't like her, "wanna know how you feel", etc, etc...

    It is about how she has lost the love of her life and she desperately wants him back.
    She's trying to make it like she had it before but she feels he's moved on
    She wans to "make it through the fall" as in the fall of their relationship and then she wants to just keep it the same and not talk about it cos she's too much in love with him

    I know this cos I lost the love of my life and desperately want him back.......this song is my anthem

    I'm not really sure is she is talking from experience in a relationship but in the song 'fall to peices' she is obviously having troubles in her relationship and doesn't want it to end. 'Make it through the fall make it through it all' she wants it to last even though she knows it might not....

    Ok so basically I think it's about her boy friend who has hurt her as it says
    I look away then I look back at you, you try to say things you can't undo

    It shows that she still wants to be with him and she wants to try to make it work

    i just want to sit and stare at you I don't want to talk about it I don't want a conversation I just want to cry infront of you I don't wanna talk about it because I am in love with you
